Hi, guys! Happy Friday. It was kind of a slow week on this end, beauty wise, and the only remotely exciting thing I did was buy another bottle of Avene Solaire SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen. Side note: am I the only person that gets excited about sunscreen?

Anyway, this is my second bottle, and I’m pretty sure eventually a third bottle will be in my future in the next few months because it’s the best non-tinted mineral face sunscreen I’ve found so far. It doesn’t leave a white cast, absorbs into my skin quickly and isn’t drying at all.

FYI, the finish is slightly dewy, but not sparkly, so if you prefer a matte look, something like Bliss Block Star might be a better fit.

I popped in and out of Sephora yesterday to check out the Danessa Myricks Color Fix Pigments! Unfortunately the store closest to me only had, like, five shades, and they were all colors that didn’t do anything for my soul, so I didn’t pull the trigger.

I also had ice cream melting in the back of my car (FYI, I’m the “ice cream lady” at Connor’s school) so I didn’t have time to stick around and play. I’m going to try to stop by on the weekend.

Oh, on my way out I noticed holiday kits already out on the shelves! I know that we’ll all collectively blink and suddenly the holidays will be here, but I’m not quite ready yet to do any Christmas shopping. How about you? I also know myself way too well. I’d buy kits allegedly for others and just end up keeping them, ha ha ha!

I hope you’re having a great Friday so far! TGIF!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    You have piqued my interest with those pigments. I checked them out on the Sephora site and there are largely very positive reviews and some amazing photos using the pigments posted by make up artists! I’ll be interested in your thoughts if you do pick one (or two) up.

    I will not think about holiday shopping and you can’t make me!! I love October and Halloween so I’m soaking up the spooky and will think about Christmas next month.

    Happy Friday!

      I might order a few unseen! I was really impressed by the pigment and smoothness!

    I am absolutely NOT ready for Christmas shopping yet, or anything else holiday related. It feels like fall has just about arrived.
